    but the email states that it is now final, and they are obliged to supply the goods. (massively paraphrased)
    That's no different to a seller on eBay refusing to send something that sold for less than they wanted, though.

    Sure, you'll get your money back and the seller may have their account taken off them for non-performance, but there's little chance you'll ever receive the item.

    Despite our efforts, a small number of the millions of products in our catalogue are mispriced. Rest assured, however, that we verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures. If a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and send you the product. If a product's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatch or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
    Yes, but that's just amazon isn't it? According to Amazon T&C, the contract with the marketplace sellers is final.

    but how much of a **** is it building up a reputation on sirtes like that. having their account deactivated would ruin them, and put them back to square one, trying to get in the first punters. its truly not worth it on their part.

    Aren't market place just public sellers not companies associated with amazon though?

    I think we should all try and email newspapers/BBC to try and get some publicity about it. Amazon are less likely to deny the order if their company will look bad.

    lol all these errors are from amazon

    it says the email isnt a contract to purchase unless its ordered off the marketplace

    hopefully

    Please note that for items ordered from Amazon.co.uk this e-mail is only an acknowledgement of receipt of your order and your contract to purchase these items is not complete until we send you an e-mail notifying you that the items have been dispatched to you. For items purchased from third parties in Marketplace, this e-mail confirms the completion of your contract to purchase those items.

    Wow! I would have thought they legally have to sell it to you for the price it's being advertised at? I think that's the case on the high-street. Not sure if it's the same online...
    No it's not, and neither is it on the high street. This counts as an invitation to treat, not a contract, and only if they actually deliver the product does it become legally binding.
